Nomacs Ubuntu 14.10

Nomacs image viewer has finally reached v2.0 with plugins support and other new features. It’s available in its official PPA for Ubuntu 14.10, Ubuntu 14.04, and Ubuntu 12.04.

Nomacs is small, fast image viewer that handles the most common image formats including RAW images. Additionally it is possible to synchronize multiple viewers. A synchronization of viewers running on the same computer or via LAN is possible. It allows to compare images and spot the differences (e.g. schemes of architects to show the progress).

Nomacs features:

  • VIEWING: most common formats (including RAW), thumbnail preview, framless view, slideshow, and more.
  • EDITING: crop, resize, rotate, drag and drop images, color adjustments, multi page TIFF export, and more.
  • SYNCHRONIZATION: synchronize multiple instances.
